TRIMMING YOUR CAT’S NAILS
Getting your cat to behave while you cut or trim his or her nails can be tricky. This is why teaching your kitty to cope with the feeling of having his or her feet touched can help come time to trim. The best time to begin getting the feet used to touch is when your cat is still a kitten.
Most felines require nail trimming about every 10-14 days, but it's recommended you consult with your veterinarian if you are not sure how or how often you should be cutting your cat's nails.
The ideal time to trim your cat's nails is when he or she is calm, happy and relaxed. This could be following mealtime or after playing with some catnip toys.
Grab your favorite pet nail clippers as well as something that will help clot blood in case bleeding occurs. Find a quiet spot where you can have your cat sit comfortably on your lap as you slowly trim his or her claws. (Make sure all other pets will not disturb you and your kitty.) Keep in mind that it's best to point your cat's claw away from you during trimming to prevent scratching and you might also want to cover your legs with a folded up towel or blanket for added protection.
TRIMMING YOUR DOG’S NAILS
We can't stress this enough: A nail trimming should be an enjoyable experience for both you and your pup. If a cutting causes your dog pain, it will most likely be much more difficult to perform trimmings in the future. This is why you need to make sure you only trim a safe amount at a time.
When it comes downs to it, all dogs need their nails trimmed on a regular basis. You don't want them to be too long or too short, and a healthy nails will slightly touch the ground as your dog walks. The nails of active dogs can gradually trim from walking on pavement, but dogs who aren't as active should receive trimmings more frequently.
Since you want the nail trimming to be enjoyable for your dog, it's recommended you start conditioning him or her from an early age. To start introducing your puppy to trimming, begin by massaging their paws regularly when they are just weeks old. This will get him or her used to the feeling so that they won't feel uneasy once the clippers are in the picture. When it's time to trim your dog's nails, you will want to start with just one or two nails a day to test his or her reaction. Don't forget to follow up with a treat and a cuddle session to condition and comfort your pet.
FEARFUL OR AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR YOUR PET
Cutting the quick will cause your pet tremendous pain and the paw might bleed, which is why you should make sure to avoid it. The “quick” is a small pink area that is at the base of your pet's nail and it should be avoided when cutting. Since it is a spot that consists of nerves and blood cells, severing the quick can cause the paw to bleed. If this occurs, stop cutting your pet's nails immediately. To stop the bleeding, quickly apply a styptic patch to the nail. You can also use styptic powder, a bit of flour or a dab of cornstarch. The powder should stick so that it clots the cut. If bleeding continues for more than a couple of minutes, call your veterinarian for advice on what other steps you should take.
If your pet experiences pain or discomfort during a nail trimming, it might be difficult to ever cut his or her nails again. This is because the trauma of an unfortunate experience can have long term emotional effects. Just make sure you don't ever clip the quick and try to make the experience as enjoyable for your pet as possible. If your pet squirms and moves about when you try to cut his or her nails, try talking to him or her in a soft, calming voice. If his or her behavior doesn't change, take a break from trimming. Don't ever punch your pet for not cooperating with you during a trimming and remember to always reward good behavior with a treat, a cuddle session or play time.
Nail clippers or nail scissors that are made for humans can split your pet's nails, so never use them to trim his or her claws. If unsure where you should be cutting, as your vet tech to show you next time you're in for a visit. Those who work at pet shelters and groomers might also be able to offer some good advice or provide a free demo. If you feel you need help, ask your veterinarian or groomer for a demonstration. There are also behavior specialists and trainers that might be able to help you train your pet so that you can trim his or her nails when need be. These individuals are known as animal behaviorist (CAAB), a veterinary behaviorist (DACVB), or a certified dog trainer (CPDT).
